1. Tai Fah See Karm, Kev Hlub Txiav Tsis Tau, but probably more commonly known as Lis Ceeb thiab Maiv Xis. I grew up watching this movie, like many other Hmong-Americans. This movie is about the love between Lis Ceeb and Maiv Xis. Lis Ceeb is a person of a hilltribe people, specifically Hmong. Maiv Xis is an inner city Thai girl who falls in love with Lis Ceeb. The movie portrays the difficulties of their relationship, the disapproval of her mother, Lis Ceeb’s battle with the rising rebellious organizations, Lis Ceeb’s responsibility to his village and family, for many of us this movie set the romantic precedent of what love is supposed to be.
